The best part—each of these gift cards is available at up to $20 less than the retail value, meaning that you save on what they crave.
For the Busy Traditionalist
Many people love cooking, very few have the time to do so—that’s why we offer 15-minute cooking kits. Imagine each kit as a page from your favorite cookbook with a promise—all the sustainably-sourced ingredients are deftly prepared so that tasty is a guarantee. Great for anything from date nights to weeknights, our cooking kits are a fun way to cook a meal at home on a busy schedule.
Not sure when to give this sort of gift? Don’t fret—most of our cooking kits can be stored for a few days so dinner can be when the recipient needs it, rather than right when they receive it.
